Right now, in Canada, there are many Cannabis dispensaries, some legal, some not, some are in a kind of legal grey-zone (at least, that's the way the police are enforcing the law).
Whether or not your store, or place of work, is left alone or not seems quite arbitrary.
Example. Police have NOT raided the pot dispensary owned by a fellow cop, despite no legal difference between his business and those raided and robbed of their property by cops.
There are not a lot of jobs out there to be had. There are almost certainly some young pot dispensary workers who cannot afford to just turn down the opportunity of a wage.
Some of these people are being handcuffed and thrown in jail. They're being treated like criminals for the crime of wanting to be gainfully employed.
Should we really be punishing these young people, Justin Trudeau?
Hasn't this bad law done enough harm?
They hate that guy....Popular Will"How much will your investigation, the subsequent trial, etc. end up costing taxpayers, yrp?

My query, posted on twitter, facebook, and now here on dA, remains unanswered.
The 'authorities' don't want the public to know how much money they waste, in their vain attempt to counter popular will.
Here is a link to the document where the York Regional Police boast of the exaggerated value of their...let's call it "work"....in eradicating an activity most
Canada: A Just Society?In a truly just society, a judge would determine that Linda Hunt, the woman that saved Constable Michael Klarenbeek's life in a Brampton courtroom, is NOT a DANGER to SOCIETY for using cannabis.
In fact, in a perfect world, Linda Hunt would be given a medal, instead of having to beg for mercy from a judge, for daring to use cannabis to treat her maladies.
This is our reality in Ontario Canada, on this first day of April.
Justice should also be seen to be done, your...uh..."honour"...
Drop the charges against Linda Hunt.

Charges against Linda Hunt DROPPED!
DRUNKTANK DOPE: What are the Statistics, Steve?We are all familiar with the terms drunk-driver, drunk-tank, drunk in public, these are things we have adjusted our laws to address. We spend tax money on construction, in the case of the cells used to hold people intoxicated on the legal substance alcohol. We even build and fund havens for those fleeing booze-fueled beatings from their spouses.
It got me wondering about the stats in places where cannabis is now legal.
How many people have been jailed for being under the influence of pot in public?
How much tax money has been spent jailing out-of-order weed users?
What is the number for those who were so out-of-control behind the wheel that they required police intervention?
Accidents caused by those out-of-control herb-using drivers?
Shelters required to protect spouses from marijuana-fueled violence?
We've spent money on drunk-tanks, to deal with the INEVITABLE unruly drunks, but the notion of legalizing cannabis is seen as dangerous by some short-sighted politicians, like Steph
